to see what you thought about our heated and smackdown debate. apparently 32% of you say that marissa mayer was in the right to do what she wanted. it's her company, and she can do as she pleases. 68% agreed with me and thought i was right. >> you agreed that it's her company. she's the head of that company. it's not her company. it's the shareholders' company. you agreed she had a right to do it. we all agree she's got the right to do it. we also agree she has to live with the consequences of it. she's going to lose some very good people probably, but you said a lot of the people said that they would get a different job if they could. >> if they could. >> i think if you have a choice, right? i mean, this is what some -- wendy white wrote -- i said it. wendy white wrote, "if working from home is not productive, when employees come home, can they just turn off their emails and et cetera?" a lot of people do a lot of work from home, and if you are not supposed to work from home, does that mean we shut it all down?
>> here's what i think is going to happen. >> it's going to be fun to watch it over the next few months. not just the stock, what happens with that and the value of the company, which is important to shareholders, but the -- what happens in terms of good employees leaving, going off someplace else. great people will find other jobs. they will go to google. they'll go to -- they'll go someplace, facebook. they'll find jobs. but it's going to be interesting to see if there's so much unhappiness there that she then realizes, you know, let's try a little something else. >> another way about it. >> here's what we talked about. this morning as we were talking about your reaction, we understood. i knew -- i thought it would have been higher than most people thought. most people out there watching us aren't ceos. they're people that have jobs or are working from home or are looking for jobs. you see things from that perspective. how about this perspective? >> what? >> what about if she had never gone to yahoo and the person who was running it before ultimately ran it into the ground and everybody ultimately lost all of their jobs?
which is what happens sometimes when companies are badly run. that's all i just want to say. that's a -- let's -- that's a what if. let's think this thing through. >> i think she could probably have made some choices without being so aggressive about it. like we talked about yesterday, you can say, look, if you guys don't jack up your productivity in a month, we're going to get rid of that working from home thing. let's try this first. let's see if we can get everyone to turn the beat around and if you can, we'll leave it in place. if you can't, anyway, i'm done with serious topics. >> if you really want to do the best for the company. then the people working there are part of that company, and she will ultimately get to a point where she does the best for them as well, which will be best for the company ultimately. >> that's what i was going to suggest after i had a sip of wine. >> all right. you might need a big gulp after this. this woman had to go. you have to go, go, go. >> she lives in place called aaron, tennessee. there was a restaurant that had a sign up that said you only paying customers can use the
rest room. well, she didn't have time to wait, apparently. she went in, used the rest rm, went home, whatever. who even thinks about it twice? >> she knew. >> what happened was -- >> she knew what she had done. it was wrong. >> a few days later she went to her mailbox and found -- >> lo and behold -- >> a bill from the restaurant for $5 asking her to pay because she abused their rest room, and they want $5 for the toilet paper square and the water that she used. >> and the soap. >> and the soap. >> and the people that have to -- you know, the labor that goes into cleaning up the bathroom when people have left it. >> the weird thing was the cops had to track her down. apparently they turned it into a whole -- well, the -- i guess the restaurant called the police. the police tracked her license plate. let's talk about the effort that went into tracking down -- >> now think how much that costs the taxpayers because the police officer who should have been looking for criminals is trying to find her. >> tracking down.
>> she as a criminal. according to the restaurant she's a criminal. i say taser her and it's over. >> it is an awkward thing, too. if you've gone to a restaurant and there's a sign you have to have to have to go. >> would they prefer that you go right where you are and create a -- you know this happens to me on occasion. you go in. i always ask. i say excuse me. i am so sorry but i have an emergency. may i please? i've never had somebody say no, you can't, lady. go in the woods. never happens. >> i usually dart in because sometimes there's a line at mcdonald's or whatever. i go use the bathroom, and then i come out and buy french fries or something. anything. because i feel bad about -- i do feel bad about going without buying something. >> if there's a sign. >> if there's a sign. but i think it's weird. i mean, look. it doesn't happen often. not like people are constantly stopping in and using the bathroom. >> the interesting thing is, there really are no public
restrooms in new york. >> oh, in times square. remember those ones with the charmin paperer? >> that didn't stay. >> oh, right. >> they want your money. and now you have to order two drinks to get yourself over 16 fluid ounces. you know that, hoda >> yes, i do. >> that doesn't apply to wine. >> all right. on a plane if you were to describe the most annoying thing in your opinion about flying, what would that thing be? okay. >> another study reveals. >> there was another study. it revealed -- >> trip adviser. >> it revealed the number one complaint we all have is the lack of leg room on flights and how jammed up everybody is and how it's hard. you can't recline, or you could, but you're in someone's lap or someone is reclining and they're in your lap, and it's very uncomfortable. i don't like the feeling. i was flying on that -- on the delta shuttle. which is a great flight back and forth. >> from new york to boston. >> i thought there were two
classes on that. >> there are. once you get in -- well, i flew coach, and you can sit anywhere. it's wide open. >> there's a certain number of rows back you have to sit. >> i sat down. a lady got in front of me, and she sat directly in front of me. the plane is wide open. here she is. she reclined. >> like at movie theaters. when you are the only one in there, and the next person comes and sits right in front of you. >> why do they do that? it's not -- >> it's like dogs. they urinate just to -- my space. >> are they oblivious that you're sitting there and that they -- >> i am so aware of everybody. i'm, like, move over six places so there's lots of room for their coat. >> what is it? >> right. >> what is that? >> it's called self-absorption. >> and the second was the airline tickets cost a fortune. >> i would have thought that would have been the first thing. how costly it is to fly now. >> when you pay, you think you should get something. >> unpredictable flight delays. now it's going to be six days so you can get through customs, and the fourth is long security
lines. that's going to get much worse, hoda. >> those take forever now. they're slower and slower and slower. >> you know what, i'm exhausted by the time you get on the plane. you're just -- by the time you get through the line and you're taking everything off, i had on a tank -- well, i had on a tank top with a sweater, and they said take your sweater off. i had on a tank. you don't want to be walking around with everything hanging. anyway, i -- >> somebody wanted you to be. we got off the plane in israel. on our way back from israel last year and went through customs, and our friend went flying right through and she had this thing called the global thing. i said i want that. >> did you get that? >> how do i get that? we applied for it. you got to go for an interview and the whole thing. i get my global. i'm so excited. i go to jfk airport because i'm going to fly to l.a. no, it's random. why have it if it's not going to be the great -- no, it's not just international, chrissy.
it's domestic flights. >> someone else is complaining about that too. it doesn't work all the time. >> you're not always right. 99.9% of the time. one time at work on my way to l.a., and another time it doesn't work. it's random. they've got -- >> now we're going to play the best song ever. >> oh, lord have mercy. >> it's a country song, but it's a little bit of a sing-along, and there are only a couple of words you need to know. i chose the back end of this song. i never choose the end of the song. this one had such a great thing at the end. >> you never choose the right part of the song. >> this is the best part. get ready to sing along. everybody. it's called "boondocks, little big town." ♪ one day i know no matter where i go i keep my heart in the boondocks ♪ ♪ i keep my heart and soul in the boondocks ♪ >> we're all going to sing together. it's easy to learn. ready? >> i'm going to do the hand motions so you can get it. ♪ you get a line i'll get a pole
